At Christys’ London, craft is key. Since its founding in 1773, now celebrating its 250th year, Miller Christy’s passion for impeccable quality and skilled craftsmanship has passed through generations of hatmakers, safeguarding Christys’ red and gold insignia as a symbol synonymous with fine traditionally crafted hats.
Official helmet manufacturer of the UK Police Force for two centuries. Christys’ stands as the Godfather of British hat making – not least since its Homburg hat was worn by Marlon Brando’s Don Corleone, as was the iconic ‘Poet Adventurer Hat’ worn by Harrison Ford in the Indiana Jones movies.
Today’s hat collection embraces the very best of Christys’ heritage and traditional hat making skills. Whilst methods have remained largely unchanged and heritage is paramount, it is the capacity to transcend trends and social borders that makes Christys’ hats as sought after as ever.
